First the element went, i took apart the dryer and tied the broken pieces back together, that lasted for a short while before it stopped working, I went and got a element, and installed the element into the dryer, put it all back together and still no go, it does not heat up, i took it apart again and looked for loose wires but there were none to be seen, Then i checked for power at the element, and where the two wire enter the element on the one side have power. The motor works fine, but why will the element not work. I am at the end of my wits
pls help
thanks

Could be tripped breaker from TYING element together...thats a no no... Possible knot from twisting element together caused high limit or safty thermostat to tripp. Thermal fuse mostly looks like white plastic part with small wires.When they trip it turns of heater and most brands turns off motor too. On heater box would be a small round disk that is heater safty thermal switch. Possibly that is open.
